My other computer allows me to enter in the current date by pressing the shift and ; at the same time = 10-20-1998.  It is not specific to the software being used,it is something programed into the computer.  I have looked at the control panel and there are no options to select to make this do that. I am currently using Windows 98. Does anyone know how to do that?

The type of computer is a clone-IMB compatible.  It was build by a knowledgeable computer person.  Unfortunetly, I lost contact with him.  I think he programmed a macro.  TT

I assume you are using Word97 ??
If so, copy the Normal.DOT and the Winword.OPT files to the other machine.
